I know this question has been answered 1000 times on here, but I've read alot of forums that were 6-9 years old, and just want to get up to date opinions. I expanded to 15 hives last year, and while I didn't take any honey last year, I plan to this year (Lord willing), and I'm in the market for an extractor. I don't really want to continue the ole crush and strain method with this number of hives. I would prefer a power driven extractor over a hand crank device, and I would prefer something in the 18-20 shallow/medium frame capacity range. That way if I feel the need to expand, I won't have to again be in the market for another extractor. I've looked at all the major suppliers, and I need your help, because I don't know much about any of their products. The one that caught my eye the most was the 18 frame extractor from Millers Bee Supply, appears to be very affordable compared with other brands, but again, I need some advice on what you more experienced beeks would recommend. Thanks.
